in reply to Perlmonk's "best pratices" in the real world

I'd just like to share a little observation here, which i found quite interesting:
up to now, i think i have been up- and downvoted at least 40 times (first time i see that the monks can't make up their minds). i thought that was quite interesting, taking the topic into account.
additionaly, i'd just really like to make it clear that my code isn't THAT bad...maybe not "PM-class", but certainly maintainable (even by someone else than me). but i am of course walways willing to improve...
but my original post wasn't supposed to me that much about me, but the perlmonks-attidude...but hey! i learned something.

    You accidentally stumbled onto a very controversial issue. Perl has a diverse community, partly because it offers a better balance between "just get it done" and "do it right" than most other languages. There is bound to be some friction between these attitudes in any public place where people talk about Perl. I've seen it in person at most of the jobs I've had. As long as people treat each other politely and recognize that others may have something to teach us, it is usually not a big problem.

    Why do you care?

      i dont!
      well..not that much... :-)
      i just wnated to say that i am a bit surprised about the activity on this thread, and how the ++ and the -- keep their balance...
      and addionally, i have to admit that my ego's suffering a bit, because everybody seems to assume that i'm a complete newbie...really kinda hurts.

    This is about the 5th post of yours which I have read, and I can't keep quiet any longer. I realize we are all not English professors, and the Monastery is not a literature course. But, if your code is anywhere near as bad as your Perlmonks posts, I wouldn't want to touch it with a 10 foot pole.

    There are many types of errors present, but the easiest to fix are probably the numerous typos. It's really not that difficult to avoid this type of thing. Please, I beg of you, slow down! At least read your posts one or two times before submitting them. Or perhaps you are posting while drunk? That would explain a few things... ;)
